Benefits of driving a plug-in electric vehicle

Fuel savings

Assuming a home electricity rate of 10 cents per kilowatt hour, this is equal to paying approximately 75 cents per gallon for gasoline. In addition, public charging stations, as well as those at workplace and commercial properties, are appearing throughout the Houston area.

Environmentally friendly

Electric vehicles consume less fuel, and battery electric vehicles produce no tailpipe emissions such as carbon dioxide or other pollutants. 

Enhanced driving and ownership experience

Electric motors provide high-performance acceleration without sacrificing a quiet, comfortable ride or smooth operation. Plus, with fewer moving parts than an internal combustion engine, electric vehicles require less maintenance.
